Editors’ Notes

This 1994 album compiles Hendrix’s forays into pure blues, a form with which he maintained close ties over the course of his brief career. Several of these songs exhibit his ability to burrow deep inside the heart of a groove, and redecorate it with streams of guitar: “Born Under a Bad Sign,” “Red House,” “Catfish Blues” and “Once I Had a Woman.” Other songs start as simple riffs, and gradually morph into lawless, limitless rock ’n’ roll: “Mannish Boy,” “Electric Church Red House” and “Jam 292,” the last of which is based on Duke Ellington’s “Dooji Wooji.” Hendrix’s name is synonymous with amplified glory, which makes a solo version of “Hear My Train a Comin’” disarming. With nothing more than a twelve-string acoustic (which the left-handed Hendrix plays upside-down), Hendrix shows that there is no fundamental difference between what he does, and what Robert Johnson did. Even if he had never delved into the realms of pop, psychedelic, funk and gospel, and had instead remained loyal to the traditions of Albert King, Muddy Waters and Elmore James, Hendrix would stand as one of history’s most imaginative and revolutionary bluesmen.

Customer Reviews

My Favorite Jimi Album

This is my favorite Jimi Hendrix Album. It was compiled after his death from all the "Blues" songs he had recorded. It has all the elements of rock, while still keeping its true blues/jazz feel. He is truly an amazing guitarist! Definitely recommend this album, as well as the songs "Born under a bad sign" "catfish blues", "bleeding heart" and "voodoo chile blues". These songs are straight from the heart!

His Music Comes From The Soul

Jimi Hendrix is a musical genius. he has smooth rythms and this is so much better than the stuff people listen to now. this is not the only good album he has. try some of his others. there just as ahmazing. :)

Jimi uncut and raw

Perhaps no other album managed to capture Jimi Hendrix and his roots in such a pure and raw form. The songs on this album portrays Jimi's deep roots as a blues guitarist first, and maps out a progression in his early style that helped shape the legend we know of today. If you are a true Jimi Hendrix fan, then this album is a must for your collection.

Biography

Born: November 27, 1942 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s

In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. His frequent hurricane blasts of noise and dazzling showmanship — he could and would play behind his back and with his teeth and set...
